Fly Fishing Open Day


The 2021 Open Day has been cancelled due to the extension of the covid-19 regulations.

An Open Day is held each year during the early trout season at Gargrave/Broughton on the River Aire. Any angler wanting to learn a little about Fly Fishing or improve his/her skills is welcome to come along for advice on fishing techniques, choosing the right equipment and to get free casting tuition at the waterside. In previous years we have also had kick-sampling and demonstrations from Fly Fishing professionals and instructors. There is usually a small charge made, which is donated to the Wild Trout Trust.

Many anglers have learnt the basics of fly casting, tackle selection and water-craft at these sessions and have often had their first ‘fly-caught’ trout before the day is over.
